Eliciting useful information from young patients and their families is both a skill and an art, and Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents, an exceptionally practical and comprehensive guide, enables mental health clinicians and trainees to first improve their interviewing skills and then organize and integrate the information derived from the interview to construct an effective treatment program. This book, building on the success of its predecessor, Clinical Manual of Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents, offers updated and revised material, as well as expanded coverage that includes new findings and addresses emerging issues in the field. For example, a new chapter focusing on the psychiatric evaluation of preschoolers and very young children has been added, and the section on bullying in the chapter on abuse has been expanded to include cyber bullying. Clinical vignettes illustrate important concepts and techniques, providing a real-world component that readers will find both fascinating and instructive, and the key points at the end of each chapter and numerous quick-reference tables facilitate consolidation of learning.

Easy to read, yet rigorous in its clinical focus, Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents provides a solid foundation and expert guidance for clinicians evaluating and treating this critically important population.

Psychic Reiki: Divine Life-Force Energy Healing

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychic Reiki: Divine Life-Force Energy Healing
Jun 042018
 


Psychic Reiki is the culminating work of Bevell’s previous books about Reiki, plus some new techniques, combined into one elegant and user-friendly energy healing system. As with traditional Reiki, its practitioners practice accessing the Divine Life Force energy known as Reiki for well-being and spiritual development.

Yet this system differs from traditional Reiki in that there are no symbols and no hand positions, since the practitioner learns to communicate with and direct the energy of Reiki telepathically.

The Great Ideas of Clinical Science: 17 Principles that Every Mental Health Professional Should Understand

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Great Ideas of Clinical Science: 17 Principles that Every Mental Health Professional Should Understand
May 222018
 


The idea that there is a fundamental rift between researchers and practitioners should not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the current literature, trends, and general feelings in the field of clinical psychology. Central to this scientist-practitioner gap is an underlying disagreement over the nature of knowledge – namely that while some individuals point to research studies as the foundation of truth, others argue that clinical experience offers a more adequate understanding of the causes, assessment, and treatment of mental illness.

The Great Ideas of Clinical Science is an ambitious attempt to dig beneath these fundamental differences, and reintroduce the reader to unifying principles often overlooked by students and professionals alike. The editors have identified 17 such universals, and have pulled together a group of the most prolific minds in the field to present the philosophical, methodological, and conceptual ideas that define the state of the field. Each chapter focuses on practical as well as conceptual points, offering valuable insight to practicing clinicians, researchers, and teachers of any level of experience. Written for student, practitioner, researcher, and educated layperson, this integrative volume aims to facilitate communication among all mental health professionals and to narrow the scientist-practitioner gap.
